About CVRCA

The Central Virginia Radio Control Association was formed in the late 1950’s to promote model aviation and to establish a flying site for modelers in the Lynchburg area. The club is chartered by the Academy of Model Aeronautics, which provides members liability insurance and competition privileges, as well as the opportunity to belong to a national support group. To obtain the necessary insurance needs, membership in the AMA is required of club members who participate in flying activities. Club membership is open to anyone interested in model aviation. Check the Upcoming Events Calendar for the next scheduled meeting. Perspective members and visitors are welcome. Our Field is located on US Route 29/460, in the eastern part of the City of Lynchburg, across the street from Falwell Airport, come by and join us some Sunday afternoon.

Airshow Update

More information on the air show:

1) Setup will be on Friday morning (9/20/11) from 9AM to 12 Noon * We will be allowed close to the display area during these times * This is be on the General Aviation side of the field

2) We will need to supply our own sunshade and tables * I have 2 tables that can be used
* If anyone has a quick-up sun awning let me know ASAP, otherwise I will need to purchase one

3) We can leave our stuff on the field overnight Friday and Saturday
* Security will not be an issue as there will be armed guards on-site for the Blue Angles * We can leave a trailer on-site to store our gear * I inquired about utilizing the Bedford equipment for this and they will get back to me on that. In the meantime, if anyone has access to an enclosed cargo trailer let me know.

4) Tickets are going fast and there is a limit on the number they are going to sell in order to prevent overcrowding the field.

5) We still need people to man the booth

6) On the days of the show, free parking will be at CVCC and Liberty University, with a free shuttle to the field. There will most likely also be paid parking closer to the show, but no shuttle service, so be careful.
